6 of the best GPS dog collars and trackers to keep tabs on your pet

If you’re like us, you get slight separation anxiety when you see your pooch run off. We don’t blame you. Equipping pets with ID tags or microchips is one way to ensure your pets’ safe return in case they get lost while on holiday or stray away from home, but you can take your dog’s safety to another level — with wearable tech for pets. 
Pet cameras are getting more and more popular, and pet wearables, such as GPS collars, are making it possible for pet parents to track their dog’s location (and even monitor their activity) wherever they are.
